Captain Alan Murray
Alan Murray was born in Melbourne, Florida and moved to North Carolina in 1980. No matter what zip code, Alan is working, fishing, and if a boat is near, then Alan can be found. He has been a private sportfishing captain for over 35 years. When he is not fishing, he loves hunting, cooking, and trips to Alaska with family and friends. He has accumulated a wealth of knowledge, always impressing everyone with endless facts and trivia. He is the proud dad of two daughters, Brena and Emmi; and his late son, Alan Jr.. He will go to the depths of the ocean to make sure everyone around is safe, happy and well fed.
